Ordinary beauty...

(textured with Kim's 1011, multiply mode, 100% opacity)

It's a bit of a challenge on the gray, rainy days to get both the lighting and the inspiration for good indoor shots.
This week I kept it simple.
There was no styling a combination of interesting objects,
just the simple beauty of a few ordinary objects standing alone.
Except for a pair of pears, that is.

I like the pop of the red pot in the photo of my aloe vera plant.

This simple, all neutral colored photo of a Heath pottery casserole dish is my favorite of today's photo efforts.

  2. I saw some beautiful Bosc (?) pears in the Nampa Albertsons when we were in Boise last weekend. I wish I had bought some. Beautiful pair duo.... great color post, too!

  3. They're all beautiful! I don't think I can pick a favourite. I do like the simplicity of the last one, but for some reason the second one really appeals to me, too.

    1. Carola, still life is my favorite I think. Maybe because moving objects, like people, are more challenging!

  15. Oh yes, shooting indoors on a gray day is tough. That is why I purchased umbrella lights a few years ago. I've tried flash lights too - but it just washes the texture and detail in my opinion. Have you tried in lighting?

    1. Kristy, I haven't even looked into investing in lights, but perhaps I should.
